If Michael Moore’s latest unhinged documentary, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” should somehow lead to his “persecution” in the U.S., he says he will escape to Canada.
If every progressive/Marxist/radical wingnut who has threatened to move to Canada since President Trump was elected actually had the courage of their purported convictions, the two nations would have roughly similar populations now. Tragically, this hasn’t happened. In fact, I can’t think of any loony leftist that has put his or her money where their mouth is and moved to the Great White North. Moore, however, claims he is serious about emigrating to the People’s Republic of Canuckistan. If he moves to any city in The True North, even a small town, it will be very crowded, indeed.
There is an old joke that goes something like this: “What do you call 100 lawyers at the bottom of the sea?” The answer? “A good start.” In much the same vein, I offer this one: “What do you call 100 Hollywood celebrities living in Vancouver?” The answer? “A good start.”
And a very beneficial trade surplus.
